Norwich Science Festival Young Communications Team 2017

A chance for young people to get involved with science communication

Please note that we are not currently taking applications as NSF 2020 is cancelled due to COVID-19.

Do you want to pursue a career in science communication or creative industries? Each year we offer a chance for young people to get involved with science communication at Norwich Science Festival.

For 2019, we teamed up with Young Norfolk Arts who coordinated the recruitment, training and activity of the Young Norfolk Arts Collective – a Comms Team with a difference.

The Collective offers young people aged 16-25 the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for them to help produce, manage, promote, record and evaluate a wide variety of local events and cultural activities throughout the year. This is achieved through regular meetings, training sessions, practical hands-on workshops and collaborative sessions with YNA’s partner organisations.

In the run up to Norwich Science Festival 2019, the Collective received appropriate digital communications and media training enabling them to write blog pieces, reviews, and social media content, take photographs and video footage, promote the festival on social media and carry out interviews to produce broadcast material.
